that have to pay this off. >> it seems to me, congressman gohmert, the bush tax cuts have been law since 2001-2003. it seems if the president doesn't want to go over the fiscal cliff, you guys pass the bill, harry reid could do something he hasn't done in over three years, pass it in the senate, give it to the president, and nobody's taxes are going to go up, crisis averred and then they can spend team after the new year negotiating tax reform, entitlement reform, living within our means. why don't they just do that? >> well, they could, but they want to demonize the house. they want to pontiff indicate without actually doing anything in the way of legislating. sean, if you look back at the history, the deficit ceiling bill back a year ago had the super committee and i think you and i knew it wasn't going to work. but one of our republican senators made a proposal to raise taxes and two senate democrats were reported to have said, wow, this is a breakthrough. we can get a deal now. we will be able to work this out. they go talk to president obama and harry reid, come back and say, sorry,
